Ship Smoke in P3Dv4
« on: March 06, 2019, 11:11:28 PM »
Smoke from the ships is reaching the sky.

I had this problem before an managed to download some file that fixed this problem,but now I see that the problem has come back since I installed all the new updated areas for 2019.

I know I downloaded some file that fixed the problem some time ago,but I can not find it in my downloads or anywhere on your website.

Sure someone will be able to help me.

Thanks
Roger

Hi Roger,
     Those are the ship's wake.  You can do a search on this forum for "vertical wake" and find discussions about it.  Here is a good one ...  ;)

Will do some searching Roger - the wee freeware program that was on AVSIM for a while has been removed (404) but I'll check my warehouse-I will have it. It works for wake files P3Dv3 as well as P3Dv4
add a string to the wake effects files so that they run horizontal instead of vertical!
It is a small exe that you have to run from command prompt in your effects folder.
(send me an email-so I have yours and when I find it will send it over).

Here is a link to "ChangeFX.exe", the file from Nuno Pinto ... I put it into a zip file, btw.   ;)

(Norm, you already included a dropbox link to this file in your post that I linked to above.)   ;)

Thanks Jeff.. (that was a 404 for me) but no matter - as long as those in need get.  Thanks again Jeff.
